    Really great, unique build. Reminds me of a mail plane version of the Hal Bulldog, or an I-15. This is just the thing they would have built in the Golden Age of Aviation (1930s), which promised higher performance, but was tricky to fly, bordering on dangerous. Beautiful work, man, I’m following now.

    Nicely done, man!! I love the design, however you should make the top window a bit more big and add a view from the periscope... also, the top view camera seems a bit high for me and it has no auto-center...

    Anyway, good job! No one does WW1 style realistic planes!!

    Absolutely stunning! However, the only thing that I can critique is that it's pretty underpowered
